OK, hands up — who wants to see Ed Sheeran perform against a backdrop of the Eiffel Tower?

The “Thinking Out Loud” star will be performing from the Champ de Mars in Paris and joining an array of legends for Global Citizen Live on Sept. 25, 2021 — a once-in-a-generation 24-hour global broadcast with live and pre-recorded performances and events across seven continents. We’ll also see events spanning Lagos, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, and Sydney, with even more locations yet to be announced. 

It’s all part of a global campaign rallying citizens, artists, world leaders, governments, major corporations, and philanthropists to work together in our mission to defend the planet and defeat poverty. The Global Citizen Live campaign is focusing on the most urgent, interrelated threats hitting those in poverty the hardest — climate change, vaccine equity, and famine. 

Global Citizens can support the campaign by taking action here or on the Global Citizen app, earning points along the way that they can then use to get incredible rewards — including tickets to Global Citizen Live events.

The Global Citizen Live event in Paris is going to be a stunning show, with performances from Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Doja Cat, Black Eyed Peas, Stormzy, and Christine and the Queens, and with special guest performances by Angélique Kidjo, Charlie Puth, and Fatma Said. 

We’ve also now announced the lineups for Global Citizen Live events in New York City and Lagos, too. You can find out all you need to know about Global Citizen Live in New York City here, and in Lagos here

We’re offering tickets to Global Citizen Live in Paris for free to action-taking Global Citizens. Here’s what you need to do to earn your spot in the crowd.

First, you need to sign up as a Global Citizen either here or by downloading the Global Citizen app. Then it works like this: you take action on our website or app to support the campaign to defend the planet and defeat poverty, which earns you points on the Global Citizen platform. You can then use these points to enter a draw where you can win tickets to the show.

So, who can enter? Well, while the main draw is only open to Global Citizens that are resident in France, we also have some special, limited ticket draws for Global Citizens in other countries too. If you're in Germany, Switzerland, the UK, or Netherlands — you're in luck! 

Head to the links below to find out more and to enter: 

The second draws are open now. You need 10 points to enter, and you can enter as many times as you like. Just keep taking action for a greater chance of winning tickets.

Watch this space for more draw announcements — and by space, we mean these ones over here: follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok to be among the first to get the latest Global Citizen Live news!

A few key bits of info in the small print: each winner receives a pair of tickets, and you must be over the age of 18 to enter. Under-18s are allowed into the event, but only as a guest of the ticket winner. 

For our Global Citizens in France, there are three main draws in total. You can take action right this second to start getting your points for the first draw, closing on Aug. 25. The second draw runs from Aug. 26 to Sept. 9, and the final draw from Sept. 10 to Sept. 15. For those in the UK, Switzerland, Germany, and Netherlands, there'll be two draws: the first from now until Aug. 25, and the second from Aug. 26 to Sept. 5. 

We’ll let you know whether you’ve won by email, so make sure to keep an eye on your spam folder too. You’ll need to claim your tickets within 48 hours of getting the email, or we’ll offer them to another lucky Global Citizen. But like we said before, if that happens, do not despair — just get stuck into the next draw! 

And if you’re not able to attend Global Citizen Live events in person, the campaign will culminate in a 24-hour global broadcast starting on Sept. 25, with live and pre-recorded performances across Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, North America, and South America. 

The historic lineup across all of the Global Citizen Live events, performances, and broadcast includes: Adam Lambert, Alessia Cara, Alok, Andrea Bocelli, Angélique Kidjo, Billie Eilish, Black Eyed Peas, BTS, Burna Boy, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, Christine and the Queens, Criolo, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, Davido, Deborra-Lee Furness, Delta Goodrem, Demi Lovato, Doja Cat, Duran Duran, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Fatma Said, Femi Kuti, Green Day, H.E.R., Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lopez, Jon Batiste, Keith Urban, Lang Lang, Liniker, Lizzo, Lorde, Made Kuti, Mart’nália, Meek Mill, Metallica, Mosquito, Rag’n’Bone Man, Ricky Martin, Shawn Mendes, Stormzy, The Lumineers, The Weeknd, Tiwa Savage, Tropkillaz, Usher, and more.
